How to Sugar Wax Your Face

How to Sugar Wax Your Face


Preparing your skin

Before applying sugar wax on your face, make sure to:

  • Be sure your hair is at least rice length to avoid breaking the hair instead of the intended pulling it from the root. 
  • Clean your face thoroughly and fully dry the area.
  • Optional: bring out a fan - sugaring in front of a fan will help prolong the life of your sugar wax and ensure your sugar wax doesn’t melt if you’re warm-bodied or sweating.
  • Apply Pre-Sugaring Body Powder.


Grab a small ball of sugar wax (about the size of a marble) and apply in the opposite direction of hair growth and pull in the direction of hair growth. Be sure to hold your skin taut to avoid bruising. Pro tip: let the sugar wax sit on your face for 30 seconds before pulling to really let it adhere to the hairs for best results. Keep repeating that process until desired hair is removed - be sure to reapply Pre-Sugaring Body Powder as needed throughout. 

Tip: If at any point the sugar wax gets too sticky - remove it with a Reusable Cloth Strip or wipe away with a damp towel. 


Be sure to cleanse the skin well - this is essential to avoid any breakouts. Next, apply Post-Sugaring Calming Serum to soothe the skin. Avoid prolonged exposure to the sun, scented products and any irritants for a few days after sugaring as your skin is still sensitive.
